Catania Cathedral

The cathedral of Sant'Agata was built over the Roman Baths of Achilles at the very point where the holy martyr Agatha died in 251. The Normans began with the construction of the first cathedral in 1090 which was restored after the earthquakes 1140 and 1169 and finally completely reconstructed from scratch after the great earthquake of 1693. The architects, Girolamo Palazzotto and Giovanni Battista Vaccarini, who designed the façade of the cathedral, were responsible for the construction in the Sicilian Baroque.
